Users of Yahoo’s e-mail service, Google’s Orkut social networking site and eBay’s PayPal online payment service were among the targets of attacks in recent weeks. All three companies have acknowledged and plugged the security holes.
How that respect plays out, though, isn’t always consistent; Viceland is often at its most fraught when it apes the voyeuristic tropes of other cable mainstays. One of the network’s more paradoxical shows is The Therapist—a face-to-face confab that, in certain regards, mirrors Intervention and Rehab with Dr. Drew—where Dr. Siri Sat Nam Singh unpacks the lived experiences of contemporary pop stars, and the habits that have bloomed as a result of years-long mental strains: alcoholism, drug use, depression. Freddie Gibbs opened up about the rape accusations he was charged with, while Katy Perry discussed being plagued by feelings of inauthenticity. The end result is something of an emotional tempest: therapy in the open can feel invasive and cruel, cheap even, but also important in its effort to destigmatize the toxic vocabulary that surrounds the practice, especially in communities where it is frowned upon (The upcoming season of HBO’s Insecure in part tugs at the tension of Going To Therapy While Black). At times you want to empathize with the artist, but the thought that this was made for TV—and perhaps not as constructive as an actual, closed therapy session might be, without the spectacle of posture and performance—is never far from the registers of your mind.

Fleishman said he worries that his business would be in deep trouble if these XML feeds went away.
Everyone on the internet seemed to be liveblogging or reading liveblogs of Apple’s iPad 3 launch event on Wednesday. Everyone, that is, except for Apple founder and number-one fanboy Steve “Woz” Wozniak. He was in Las Vegas, hanging out with the IBM data center geeks at its Pulse 2012 conference.
Keep in mind this is a beta release (technically a beta pre-release), but in our experience Prism was stable and fast.
Instead the new service is intended to play to Google’s current successes, namely Android phones – which integrate closely with Gmail and Google Voice – as well as set the stage for Google’s rumored fall launch of a social networking service to compete with Facebook.
Naturally, I hightailed it out of there as fast as my haunches could propel me, convinced that if I stayed any longer I’d be talked into buying a solid gold convertible instead of the cheap reliable compact I wanted.
“They really need to find some kind of experience that will make people think Yahoo is unique,” he said.
If you’re cherry-picking programs, you may miss built-in programs such as Microsoft Paint or programs required for 3rd party software such as Apple’s iTunes, meaning those programs may not function correctly. Therefore, you’re better off allowing everything and disabling the specific programs you don’t want them to use, such as a bit-torrent program or your financial software.
Such overlaps only sharpen the project’s implicit critique: The only way to get to space, even within the framework of the newly commercialized space industry, is with a little help from the military.
However, once the Windows client is similarly updated, call transfer should be a welcome feature.

The PS3, a tad more than 4 years old, fell victim to the root-level firmware hack weeks ago. The code, produced by hacker George Hotz, aka “GeoHot,” allows the playing of pirated and homebrew software on the console.
More regulation: Just when you thought the Bush administration might take a laissez-faire approach, there goes the Securities and Exchange Commission talking about new Internet regulations.
At the gaming network IGN, for example, executives found that crisp, clear prose was outperforming hyped-up buzzwords (like free and exclusive) on certain parts of the homepage. But in previous years, the opposite had been true. Why? They talked and talked about it, but no one could figure it out. Soon they realized that it simply didn’t matter. A/B would guide them at ground level, so there was no need to worry about why users behaved in one way or another.
